  • Last Updated : 27 Jul, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxCheckBox widget is used to display a check box that allows users to select or deselect the checkbox.

The enableContainerClick property is used to set or return the clicks on the container that are handled as clicks on the check box. It accepts Boolean type value and its default value is true.


Set the enableContainerClick property.

$('selector').jqxCheckBox({ enableContainerClick: Boolean });


Return the enableContainerClick property.

var enableCC = $('selector').jqxCheckBox('enableContainerClick');
